Every year an environmental report is produced about Johnsen
Offset A/S og Johnsen Papirindustri A/S. Johnsen is certified to
EMAS II, which means an environmental report about conditions in
the company has to be produced every year. This report is not only
an account of what has happened during the year but a documentation
of the input and commitment provided, which is verified by an
independent organisation. In this sector Johnsen works together
with Det Norske Veritas in Denmark.
Monitoring of Det Norske Veritas in Denmark is very thorough. The environment report is scrutinised in great detail and a consultant makes sure all the conditions apply on site. During inspection visits individual, randomly selected employees are interviewed about their knowledge of routine environmental procedures in their operations. At the last inspection consultant Ole Lundis came to see Johnsen. Ole Lundis' findings were that environmental awareness is well established at the company. Environmental awareness functions as a natural part of their everyday working routine. The company is capable of achieving remarkable results in the environmental sector. In general terms, what we have here is a company that functions very well, as Ole Lundis confirms in his final report.
Acknowledgment in the test report
In the final report other positive circumstances are also mentioned. Among other things, Ole Lundis writes that a Lean concept serves as an essential basis for the achievement of ongoing improvements. The company's expansion is also mentioned as a positive and visible result. In summary we can say that business and environmental goals are closely interconnected at Johnsen.
More than 10 years have now passed since we first tackled our environmental project, and as a result we have received EMAS recognition.
